Resilience in the Face of Disaster
Presented in conjunction with Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD), this webinar was crafted especially for clergy and lay employees affected by Hurricane Harvey, however the webinar content can be applied in similar situations of disaster and trauma.
Here you will explore the psychological impact of disaster and promising avenues for restoring well-being. Clinical psychologist Jody Horstman leads the 45-minute presentation, focusing on resilience and managing the stress associated with crisis. With extensive training and experience in disaster relief, Jody speaks to the needs of both survivors and responders, and points to strategies for resilience and self-care in times of crisis and when handling the stressors of everyday life.
